Yves D'Angelo

Since September 2016, I am Full Professor of Applied Mathematics at Université Côte d'Azur (formerly University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis) and Researcher at Laboratoire de Mathématiques & Interactions J.A. Dieudonné CNRS UMR 7351, in the Fluid Dynamics & Scientific Computing Group.

From September 2019 to August 2023, I am Head of the J.A. Dieudonné Lab (~ 260 people).

From 2005 to 2016, I was Full Professor in the Energy & Propulsion Department, French Institute for Applied Sciences (INSA/CORIA), Rouen, France, and Researcher at CORIA Lab.

Research Interests

My experience is strongly interdisciplinary and deals with modeling, numerical methods and simulation, scientific computing, in fluid dynamics, turbulent combustion, chemical kinetics, pollutant formation, heat & mass transfer, granular & two-phase flows, hydrodynamic instabilities…

In the combustion field, applications deal with combustive flows & thermoelectric conversion at the small scale, flame/wall interaction (with IFPEN), expanding wrinkled flames, flame-balls & ignition kernels analysis, flame/acoustics interaction, percolation modeling for front propagation, pollutant formation in plane engines (with ONERA), stratified combustion modeling in engines (with Renault).

More recent applications concern buoyant thermal destabilization in wet granular media and non-Newtonian flows (with Institut de Physique de Nice, LIED and aloso SVI/St Gobain), biological dynamic expanding networks (see the DREAMS/Nematic project below), thermodynamics of metabolic energy conversion under muscle load, ecological economics (with AFD), and also very recently thermoplasmonics at the nanoscale with the Inria Atlantis Team. Collaborations with Guillaume Baffou at Institut Fresnel in Marseille and Michel Meunier at Polytechnique Montréal are in progress.

At LIED and LJAD Labs , applications and collaborations concern:

  • Ecological Economics, with AFD and Energy & Prosperity Chair (stand-by);
  • Thermodynamics of metabolic energy conversion under muscle load and in particular the cost of oxygen question, with DYCO Team and [https://faculty.skoltech.ru/people/henniouerdane Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (stand-by);
  • GRANUTHERM Project : Buoyant destabilization in wet granular media & non-Newtonian flows with LIED and InPhyNi;
  • Eyeglass-framed thermoelectric micro-converter analysis & design (with BioPolis/Darwin, Valencia, Spain); (stand-by)
  • DREAMS/Nematic Project : , Analysis of Dynamical Expanding Networks: modeling multi-scale spatial exploration, spreading & morphogenesisespecially in the biologic context. Our archetypal example & investigation topic is the constrained hyphal growth of the filamentous fungus Podospora anserina (the DENA/DREAMS project. In the framework of an ANR support, the involved partners are LJAD, Inria COFFEE, the B2C group and Physics Group at LIED, the LMO at Orsay, the CMAP at Ecole Polytechnique, and also SNS Pisa.
  • Nano-thermoplasmonics modeling & simulation: coupling (hyperbolic) heat transfer equations and Maxwell equations at the nanoscale; further coupling with the dynamics of possibly reactive flows). Collaboration with Inria ATLANTIS Team (in progress !)

My team and I developed/still developing the following solvers:

  • DYCO, for simulating coupled potentials stock/flow approach network dynamics and application to thermo-electricity, biology, economics.
  • HALLEGRO for solving fully compressible subsonic reactive Navier-Stokes equations (HPC using MPI).
  • FLAMEX for solving asymptotics-based evolution equations, in particular propagating fronts through turbulent 2D and 3D flows (spectral/ETDRK methods for Sivashinsky-type non-linear non-local equations).

We now also make use of adapted versions of the [/Using_%26_Developing_the_OpenFoam%C2%AE_suite OpenFOAM® software].
